This is advertised as a guesthouse or hotel of some kind. It is NOT a guesthouse or a hotel, it's someone's private apartment which they rent out for a high premium.
When we arrived we were completely confused, there's no sign outside and we were wondering the streets. Then a man asked who we were and took us to the apartment. As we walked in it was clear there was something strange, there were someone's shoes by the doorway and personal things everywhere. We almost decided to leave but didn't fancy walking the streets of Rome trying to find somewhere with 2 young children in tow.
Further details, the fridge was full of food, and I mean full of normal everyday food, it was clear that the owners were going to come back as soon as we had left. One of the bedrooms had a Harry Potter poster on the wall and other teenage boy things about. Payment is to be made with cash on arrival, well this just isn't professional and stinks of dodgy dealings.
Despite this we had a great trip to Rome, the apartment was near to the metro so that's a positive and there's a great Gelato place across the road.
You can get a Hotel for half the price, don't stay at the Snow White!
